Sarah Thomas, BSc (Hons), DipBCNH, BANT, CNHC - Create Health Clinic
Hi, I'm Sarah, a Yorkshire-based Nutritional Therapist and asker of many questions! I’m passionate about gut health, metabolic health and how all the systems of the body are connected to ageing healthily.
I founded Create Health Clinic to support you to think differently about food, understand how to feed your body, and make lasting changes so you can enjoy vibrant health in every decade of life.
Whereas our ancestors were simply concerned about survival, we want to thrive as we grow older. It’s not just about living longer; we want to relish the years by feeling vibrant, staying active and mentally sharp, and reducing our risk of age-related disease.
Great nutrition is the foundation of gut health, metabolic health and ultimately healthy ageing, but it can be harder to achieve as we age. That’s where my personal nutrition assessments can help by examining your complex health history and delivering a bespoke programme that supports your unique needs.
Whether you’re looking to boost your current health, or you’re struggling with ongoing health challenges or a troubling diagnosis and you want to go deeper, my one-to-one personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes are designed to give you tailored support.
In my clinic I frequently work with clients who are struggling with low energy and unexplained fatigue, troubling gut symptoms including frequent bloating and reflux, together with those looking to improve their metabolic health due to hormonal imbalances, excessive appetite, excess weight, and blood sugar imbalances.
I offer an initial free 30-minute health review so that we can discuss your unique needs, and you can find out more about how I can help and the programmes that I offer.
What to expect from working with me
We begin with a comprehensive review of your health history, and discuss your personal goals and desired outcomes. I call this “finding your why” – and it’s a key step in the process. Then we co-create an easy-to-follow nutrition and lifestyle plan that’s unique to you, and that you’ll love to follow. Ongoing coaching support helps you to form healthy, sustainable new habits at each step and ensure that together, we’re always moving the needle towards your better health.
It’s critical to build strong foundations that deliver sustainable change and support healthy ageing. For this reason I always take a ‘food first’ approach as that’s where I see the magic truly happens – using the power of real food to get you amazing results!
For additional support I may also recommend targeted supplementation and, where appropriate, further diagnostic testing which can help refine programme efficacy and accelerate results, particularly in the case of more complex health challenges. Types of tests available include comprehensive stool test, comprehensive hormone panel, extensive nutrient deficiency panel, advanced stress profile, and cardiovascular health profile and are delivered in kit form direct to your address.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
From my experience working with my private nutrition clients, the best results are achieved when we work collaboratively together for a minimum of 3 months. That’s why clients can book one of my 12-week bespoke nutrition programmes with varying levels of one-to-one support depending on your unique health challenges, severity of symptoms, and level of coaching desired.
12-week personal nutrition programmes start from £425.
My clinic hours are flexible with a range of daytime, evening and weekend appointments available.
